Dustin's 4.0 quad rotor motor is producing over 1850 hp while running all of the accesories mentioned above, through water jacketed exhaust.
I would like to see a marine performance turbo motor producing more than 1850 hp... while running all accessories for a boat... in marine configuration... please
P.S. If you guys can not come up with a marine performance turbo motor producing more than 1850 hp...while running all accessories for a boat...in marine configuration....then Dustin's title for this thread is pretty darn legitimate.

Low boost is possible with a good flowing head as boost is simple a measure of restricion and nothing else. CFM through the air pump (engine) is the most important number.
Heat and cylinder pressure are the two main obsticles imo and thats where a proper TUNE comes into play. I mean lets face it whenever you pull more out of an engine your going to test its limits but a good fat tune can go a long way towards longevity.
Just my .02$
once you go to turbos its very hard to go back. Unless the class rules even out the feild or something like that. Look at how many classes turbos have been banned from in the past.
They just make stupid power.
Guys like Jason Betwarda were running in the 7's back in the early 90's on turbos. (AKA RACIN JASON)
I have nothing against blowers or S/C 's or anything like that I just really like turbos and thier potential.
If I Had an I/O boat not a 300X boat Id have turbos on it for sure.
I like my boats to be STOCK though and un messed with so I went OB's
Here are a few videos of Check300's setup. Top speed to date is 114 mph @ 6400. Check out the boost gauge (just below and to the right of the speedo) when getting on plain...THERE IS NO LAG. Over 1200 lb-lb @ 2500 if needed. And it idles just fine, 500 in gear 900 out.

Now that is awsome looking!
Having said that...is that boat just slow...or did they have other problems...or are the motors not really making 2500-3000 horsepower each... when fully rigged to run in the boat?
Because Nauti Marine (using supercharged motors with less horsepower) was undoubtedly the fastest and quickest boat there.
Don't get me wrong...I am a huge turbo charger fan! ... I am just not seeing a lot of turbo boats... with all these claims of huge horsepower... spanking everyone.
What will i need to have the motors put on the dyno and the ecu's remapped? or will we just be able to replace the 3.3's and go?
Can't wait to see these things!!
I know ecoboost is a very costly program as you mentioned, and one that is tough to make a business case for in actual gas savings vs additional up front costs, but the gov't has basically forced it w/ emissions and CAFE, and only getting worse in the future as you know.
I look forward to seeing the advancements in roots style blowers, turbos, and even crazier stuff like HCCI (homogeneous charge compression ignition) which a lot of people are huge on. I like all of this more than hybrids!
